about the genealogies posted on this site:
As much as is practicable, sources for information contained in the genealogies are indicated by bracketed letters or superscripts in the text with accompanying information and citations in footnotes. In general, a footnote applies to information preceding it in the same line or paragraph. A question mark in the bracket, e.g., [a?], indicates that there is some doubt associated with the reference or in using that reference for the information given. E.g., a census listing used to name a spouse or children for which there is no other information on that relationship. The footnotes are intended to provide the interested reader with a possible line of inquiry for their own interests. Where practicable, reference is made to material that can be considered to be 'available' to an aggressive investigator. Some of the referenced material is available in a well-appointed genealogical library. Sources that appear to be available only on the web are avoided as much as possible as such material tends to evaporate over time. This site itself will not last forever. Most webbrowsing genealogists have been disappointed by the infamous '404,' Page Not Found, error. References are, however, made to permanent material that can be accessed over the web, the quality of which the researcher will have to determine. These sources can often be accessed by other means. E.g., searches done at The Church of Christ of Latter-day Saints website can also be done at Family History Centers.
This is not to say that genealogical information without convincing source references will not be posted! 'Hearsay' (information without a highly reliable source) is often the key to a successful investigation. Knowing of possibilities opens up new avenues for research. Much of the information used in these genealogies is from family members or distant relatives and, to the degree it is considered authoritative by this author, research time in verifying names and dates is spent elsewhere.
